This bug is present in F11 also (or at least a rawhide snapshot just days
before its release), as evidenced by the following failure when trying to
export a file system to my LAN:

[root wrath ~]# cat /etc/exports 
/home 2001:16d8:ee47::/64(ro)
[root wrath ~]# service nfs start
Starter NFS-tjenester:  exportfs: invalid netmask `64' for 2001:16d8:ee47::
                                                           [FEILET]
Setter NFS-kvoter:                                         [  OK  ]
Starter NFS-tjeneste                                       [  OK  ]
Starter NFS mountd:                                        [  OK  ]

Doesn't work with host-names resolving to v6 addresses, either, nor does it
work to mount filesystems from remote v6 servers:

[root wrath ~]# getent hosts lust.v6.fud.no
2001:16d8:ee47:0:210:a7ff:fe04:b403 lust.v6.fud.no
[root wrath ~]# cat /etc/exports 
/home lust.v6.fud.no(ro)
[root wrath ~]# service nfs start
Starter NFS-tjenester:  exportfs: lust.v6.fud.no has non-inet addr
exportfs: lust.v6.fud.no has non-inet addr
                                                           [  OK  ]
Setter NFS-kvoter:                                         [  OK  ]
Starter NFS-tjeneste                                       [  OK  ]
Starter NFS mountd:                                        [  OK  ]
[root wrath ~]# showmount -e localhost
Export list for localhost:
[root wrath ~]# mount lust.v6.fud.no:/home /mnt
mount.nfs: DNS resolution failed for lust.v6.fud.no: Name or service not known

Not that there's any NFS server on that particular host, but it fails to even
contact it (I checked with tcpdump).

So this bug needs to be kept open for F11 as well.  I don't see how I can
change the version flag though, perhaps only the submitter can do that?
